Disgusted with San Joaquin Hospital! I was there with my daughter and seen the most insensitive treatment I have ever seen. First off, the reason I was there was my 10 month old was very lethargic and just extremely drowsy, I had to ask them to please just check her vital signs. they still made me wait. Then I seen a nurse, a worker from the hostpital go straight to a patient and take off his neck brace without saying a word! The guy turns around confused and the worker tells him your fine there's nothing wrong with you! Then about 5 hours later Im in a room waiting for about 2 hours in that room for my daughters blood work results and xray results. I hear a girl banging on the door screaming for help! Finally about 10 -15 minutes later a worker goes to the bathroom door and asks if shes ok...... the girl tells her " I don't know something came out of me its in the toilet!" The worker then tells her are you pregnant and the girl answers "Yes four months." the worker then tells her let me get someone for you. She leaves and no one ever comes. The same worker finally comes back, and tell the girl to have a seat. The girl asks what about whats in the toilet..... the worker says oh we'll take care of it. The girls goes and sits down. Then I hear to workers jokingly discuss who will take out what's in the toilet!!!!! Are you kidding me! I overhear one say EEEWWWW! I can't believe what I am witnessing. I am very saddened to have been a witness to this. This is the hospital I have to go to through my insurance but I am going to do whatever I can to go to another hospital if I ever need to hospital care. So sad

DO NOT GIVE BIRTH AT SAN JOAQUIN HOSPITAL! I gave birth here in November 2013 and it was the most traumatic and belittling experience of my life. The doctors and nurses were extremely rude and condescending. I went in at 7 centimeters and they immediately pushed me to have a C-section. One nurse even told me that I wasn't strong enough to have him naturally. I had to be extremely stubborn about having my son naturally, which I did after Iaboring for a few more hours. Like another reviewer mentioned, the nurses were also extremely rude and treated the labor room like happy hour - they continuously came into my room to discuss what they did the night before and what they were going to have for lunch. They had complete disregard for the woman with her legs in the air. Also, the pediatrician visited us about an hour after my son was born and told me that I should give him formula as my milk was not going to be enough for him. IF YOU HAVE A CHOICE, DO NOT GIVE BIRTH AT SAN JOAQUIN HOSPITAL!

I love San Joaquin Hospital. I received quality care provided by the medical staff and exceptional customer service from the billing department. I'm glad I got my surgery done here and I will keep coming back. I highly recommend this hospital. Btw, I hardly write reviews so they must be doing something right.

I liked this hospital until I had to deliver there. I was in labor and in a lot of pain. The nurses would come in chatting and making jokes with each other about random things while I was sitting there in pain wanting quiet. Another point in the night while I was there a janitor was restocking my room while I was moaning in pain and I asked her to leave and guess what she kept doing? Coming in and out of my room restocking. It is not time to restock a room with towels and to change a trash can that is not full while a lady is getting ready to push out a baby. At another point, I got a medication for pain and asked if it will make me feel weird and all the nurse said, was "maybe" and walked out. It made me very uncomfortable. After not being able to deliver naturally I had to have a c-section and, again, the nurses prepping me and the room weren't acting professional and were talking about their day and other things. I feel like they should have been acting like they were at work, not like they were out to a dinner date with girlfriends. When was in recovery a care partner (I think that's what they're called) was extremely rude to me. To sum it up she made comments like my partner was a dead beat dad (when this was the first time she had even seen us) and she also didn't listen to anything I had to say. I was in a lot of pain and I expressed that to her and her response was to not be so negative and so many more things from this lady. I will never recommend this hospital to give birth at.
